The meme shows the two kinds of “phonebooths.” One was a classic and a literal booth, a glass-enclosed room, with a telephone, that allowed people to place a call.

The other, the washrooms in our homes or offices where people sit on their porcelain throne, sometimes in deep thought, doomscrolling past one post after the other.

As hilarious as this sounds, there is some unfortunate truth to it, which can be somewhat hazardous to one’s health as well.

Vioguard Inc., a leader in UV-C technology, released a consumer survey report shedding light on the potential health risks associated with cell phone usage and inadequate sanitization practices. The survey, which included over 1,100 respondents, aimed to understand cell phone users’ habits, cleaning practices, and their awareness of bacteria and virus transfer through phone contact.

Key findings from the survey include:

Toilet Usage: A significant majority (73 per cent) of respondents admitted to using their phones in the restroom, regardless of age or gender. Among younger respondents (ages 18-29), 93 per cent acknowledged using their phones in the restroom.

Cleaning Habits: One-third of the participants confessed to never cleaning their phones, and 75 per cent admitted to cleaning them less than once per day. Less than half of those who did clean their phones used chemical wipe products, while others employed cloths, shirtsleeves, or pant-legs.

Perceived Risk: Over 87 per cent of respondents agreed that airborne viruses and bacteria can survive on surfaces, and nearly 90 per cent believed that touching dirty surfaces, including cell phones, could lead to infections.

Mark Beeston, Vice President of Sales at Vioguard, emphasizes that while consumers acknowledge the potential health risks associated with dirty phones, they take limited precautions to effectively disinfect them. Beeston underscored the importance of educating the public about phone cleanliness and promoting effective cleaning methods, such as UV-light, to minimize bacterial and viral transmission.
